Movie Casting & Directing Rumor Round-Up (Cruise, Hanks, Aronofsky, Nicholson)

Movie Casting & Directing Rumor Round-Up (Cruise, Hanks, Aronofsky, Nicholson)

Since there are a number of movie rumors floating around today, I figured I would go ahead and let you know what the main rumors circulating are today in the world of Hollywood.  Some big names and big projects are being mentioned regarding the following projects:

First off, HVB is reporting that Tom Hanks is looking to work with Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow’s Hurt Locker follow-up Sleeping Dogs. The project used to be named Triple Frontier and is about five men working in an organized crime zone in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. Some other top names are floating for the other cast members as well.

24Frames speaks of a possible Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson reunion for El Presidente which would see Nicholson play an ex-president and Cruise a Secret Service agent assigned to look after him. It would be a buddy comedy that sounds strangely in the vain of Midnight Run. The duo worked together on the classic A Few Good Men almost 20 years ago. Can you handle that truth?

Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler) is being mentioned as the possible director for Wolverine 2. The director recently lost out on the upcoming Superman to Zack Snyder and if he the rumor is true about Fox offering the chair to Darren, then that would reunite him with Hugh Jackman, whom he worked with on the bizarre fantasy film The Fountain, a few years back.

Finally, genius actor Idris Elba from HBO’s “The Wire” and Guy Ritchie’s RockNRolla appears to have been added to the cast of Ghost Rider 2.  Elba would play a drunk warrior assigned to track down Nicholas Cage’s Ghost Rider. Comingsoon says Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance is set for a February 2012 release.
